PENA, Carmen. Pharmaceutical care world and national level. Ars Pharm [online]. 2020, vol.61, n.1, pp.9-13.  Epub July 20, 2020. ISSN 2340-9894.

This article is based on the lecture given by Dr Carmen Peña at the start of the academic year of the María José Faus Dáder Chair of Pharmaceutical Care, of the University of Granada. It narrates the genesis and development of Pharmaceutical Care and the essential role played by the International Federation of Pharmacists (FIP) in its development.

In 1999, FIP and WHO together published the document “Good Practices in Pharmacy: Standards for the Quality of Pharmaceutical Services ” which has been updated continually until its 2011 version.

In Spain, while the global development of Pharmaceutical Care was taking off, a group of Spanish pharmacy leaders mobilized to introduce the concepts of the Tokyo Declaration 93, in relation to the principles of Pharmaceutical Care.

At the present time these pioneers, among whom are the General Council of Pharmacists and the Chair of Pharmaceutical Care of the University of Granada which is responsible for the integration of the Pharmaceutical Care group of said university, are firmly committed to Professional Pharmacy by way of offering quality pharmaceutical services aimed at the patient.

Keywords : Pharmaceutical Care; Pharmaceutical Services; Community Pharmacy.
